Didn't have much hope for this set because of the price. But they turned out to be a decent set of paints. I highly recommend them!

I bought this set of paint while living in Germany and it looks exactly like the picture. The set is a 2 tier plastic blue box with a tube of white paint. All the cakes are separated in individual pans and you can buy replacements (I have only seen them in Germany not in the U.S.). You can also fill them with your own paint. The names of the paint are embossed in the box. The lid is detachable and it has 8 mixing wells. You can fit 2 brushes inside the set and close the lid with no problem. The set is advertised as watercolors, but they are VERY opaque and dry with the same texture as gouache (like a chalky feel). In fact they sort of feel like a cross in between watercolor and gouache.

NOTE: These ARE qualified and sold by Pelican as children's paints; I even bought them at Müller store (a retail store that looks like Walgreens/CVS without the prescriptions area) in the school/art supplies section, but their quality is GREAT! Also, Pelikan makes actual watercolor sets and this is in fact labeled as "opaque paint" (as you can see in the pictures), unlike their watercolor sets that are labeled as "watercolor". I have other watercolor sets and summi gansai sets and I still love using this one; especially because it is different from regular transparent watercolor sets. I really like this set!! I wish Amazon would have the replacement paints available because I'm in my last set and I'm not planing on traveling to Germany any time soon!

Totally worth $20. I've paid more for paints as good as these. More like gouache than watercolor.

If you like gouache, but hate using it, and like watercolors, but feel like they are often too thin or transparent, this is a really nice paint! It's a little in-between and is great for layering your watercolors!

Additionally, the paint is ULTRA bright, so you can create super vibrant paintings real easy!

Here's an image I painted using the paints.

These are fabulous water colors just a step down from the super fancy professional ones. They are a thousand times better than the elementary school kind. Colors are vivid and bright.

Considering the price, this is a really fine product. I only recently came back to my love of water color painting, and really like the intensity of these paints. They mix well, and go on smoothly. I would recommend them for students, serious painter, and even to mom's for their kids. Very nice!

Good quality colors. Great variety. Only draw back is the latching mechanism is so flimsy that it broke the first time I opened it. Not enough to discourage me from purchasing another.

I bought my first set of 24 Pelikan watercolors in a metal box with a lift out top row and tube of white from Germany when I visited with my family. I was 12. I have come back to this set and used it every since, replacing a few colors along the way as they were used. I bought this and a #6 brush from a little shop a few blocks from my grandparent's house in Ansbach. My Grandfather helped me pick it out. Little did I know I was buying such a professional set.

I just love these colors. I've used cheaper, more expensive, cakes and tubes but I always come back to this set. Maybe it's just that I am so used to working with it. But I have embraced if it isn't broke, don't fix it and I am no longer buying anything but Pelikan.
